Hearst San Simeon SP - Elephant Seal Tours

The California State Park staff now offers Elephant Seal Tours!

Join us for the official launch of the new guided northern elephant seal tours at Hearst San Simeon State Park. What better way to ring in the New Year than to experience a fun, educational tour of the area’s most charismatic megafauna guided by knowledgeable State Park Interpreters. On the tour you will enjoy learning about the elephant seal lifecycle while overlooking battling bulls, birthing cows, and cackling pups. Don't forget to bring your binoculars for a spectacular wildlife experience like you have never seen before! 

Tours for the 2024 spring season will run through Saturday March 2nd 2024. California State Parks Staff will be onsite to greet tour goers at 9am on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. For safety reasons, viewing access is only permitted when accompanied by trained Park staff during the tour.?
